Summary: I couldn't be happier. I am running current games at 1920x1080 at full framerate usually, and even better: it is silent, and relatively inexpensive. My (very quiet) CPU is louder than this in games at full load. Another benefit, you don't need a monster power supply to play games, just takes a single PCIe 6-pin connector. The NVIDIA driver experience is also totally painless.
Summary: This card is the final upgrade I can do for my rig. I've been upgrading my pc as much as it can and what I ended up replacing was this... Gateway GT5625E Desktop. .Logisys Corp. 550W 120mm Ball Bearing Fan with PSU ATX 550 PSU .Seagate Momentus XT 500 GB 7200RPM SATA 3Gb/s 32 MB Cache .Intel Core 2 Duo E4700, 2.6 GHz, 2M L2 Cache, 800MHz FSB, LGA775 .2 Kingston HyperX 1 GB Single DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) 240-Pin .Running Windows 7 32bit I can play most of my games at a solid...
Summary: Updated from and old 1G 9500GT and the difference was night and day. Definitely a good choice for a low budget gamer or someone putting together a htpc or planning to do a lot of streaming. One caveat, not enough to dock a start though, is that this card is big with the dual fans and it might not fit into smaller htpc cases or cover up space PCI slots on mini or micro size ATX MBs.
Summary: This card will play starcraft 2 HOTS on max settings, which is all I really need if for. It obviously not a Titan or anything but it recamends the highest settings on every game i have tryed so far and they all run good (granted the most tolling games I've played on it are crysis 2 and battlefield bad company 2.
Summary: I like this card. Its just what I needed for my new rig. A friend recommended ASUS as the most reliable. I had used MSI in the past with no issues. That PC was on for about 4 years and still works. This card is in my main rig now. It handles anything I throw at it just fine. It's been on for about two months now. No issues so far. I do not game but do watch a lot of blue-ray stuff.
Summary: I'm not a computer guru however I found reviews stating that this graphics card was the best for its price point as of April 2013. Installation was easy, make sure you've got an accessory 6pin power cord in your computer. After installation I was able to play Simcity with graphic settings turned to max.
Summary: Had updated all the components in my system except my video card from 2007. I don't exactly play bleeding edge games so I can't comment on that. But it definitely improves the performance of older games and allows you to crank up all the eye candy on them without dragging down FPS rates. It is probably overkill for what I do but better too much than too little. Was easy to install, no conflicts when starting up and was also easy to find updated drivers and install them.
